The Dukhs
Migrations
Sugar Hill Records

By Paula E. Kirman

Published April 24, 2007

Migrations is the second major North American release from The Duhks, a band of young musicians from Winnipeg who blend acoustic influences from Celtic, zydeco, country, and traditional North American folk with raw energy. Nicely focused on album by heavyweight producers—Migrations was produced by Nashville roots music icon Tim O’Brien, and Bela Fleck shepherded their 2005 debut—the band moves gracefully from feel-good songs to more socially conscious fare that reflects the group’s life experiences and observations. There are also some gospel-tinged tracks, a Tracy Chapman cover (“Mountains O’ Things”), and a plethora of other tunes reflecting a broad musical range and impressive technical abilities. The band’s energetic feel and broad range may lead tradition-minded listeners to wonder in which directions the band will head in the future, but acoustic folk fans and those new to the genre will find a lot to like here on Migrations.
